Saying Big Numbers Posters

Saying big numbers can be difficult for kids, especially numbers with 5 or more digits. Students who find saying big numbers difficult may not understand that numbers are said in groups or ‘families’ of three; ones, thousands and millions and that the comma or space in numbers represent a place value word.  They become confused  because they don’t understand how the ‘families’ of numbers work,  or how to say these numbers out loud.

You probably have these students in you classroom, they are the ones that will say big numbers in a string, “seven, one, three, two, six, five” instead of seven hundred and thirteen thousand two hundred and sixty five.  Help your students become confident at saying big numbers with these FUN posters and read more about the nifty comma trick HERE…

Saying Big Numbers Posters

Latest research into learning maths, by Professor Jo Boaler, emphasises the importance of students not learning maths through memorization.  In her books Mindset Mathematics the research shows that students will do better in maths if they are given the opportunity to visualize, play and investigate the maths concepts they are learning.  She talks about how colour-coding can help students visualise number patterns which helps them to connect everything together and build a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.

Our brain wants to think visually about mathematics, yet few curriculum materials engage students in visual thinking. The neuroscientists’ research shows the importance not only of visual thinking but also of students’ connecting different areas of their brains as they work on mathematics.Jo Boaler
